The February Bellville Historical Society monthly meeting will be held at 5:00 pm on Sunday, February 19, 2017, at the historic Bellville Turnverein Pavilion. At the beginning of the meeting, we will give a short summary report of the current improvements being made to the entrances of our Bellville historical Society Lodge. (The front steps are being rebuilt, a railing has been added to the back entrance, and the concrete car stops have been removed.) Program. Our program will be a presentation of the history of the Turnverein including the restoration promoted by the Historical Society in 1995. We will hear firsthand accounts of the Turnverein from a longstanding local resident. And the Friends of Bellville will also present their plans for future improvements and use of the Turnverein. As usual at our meetings, members are asked to bring some snacks or edible goodies. The variety and quality of the snacks is a highlight of the meeting. Thanks ahead of time. We will have soft drinks, wine, and water available, and members may also bring their preferred drinks. Paul P. Coan President, Bellville Historical Society

it is January and time to “re-up” with your dues for the coming year. Your dues help preserve and maintain our historic lodge. Donations are also welcomed. Did you know that the Bellville Historical Society was founded 40 years ago? Just to remind you what an enjoyable organization this is, there is a brief review of last year’s events and activities at the bottom of this [post] Even more important is what we are going to do this year. Here are some quick ideas: Historians giving programs on Texas and Bellville history Guest speakers on other historically related and interesting topics 40th anniversary celebration of the Society Dedicated Genealogy research Possible trips to presidential libraries, Bullock Museum, Brian Museum in Galveston, San Jacinto monument, San Felipe, Goliad, etc. Of course, I believe the best part of our meetings is the social afterwards where we enjoy our favorite drinks along with the yummy treats brought in by the members and when we get to talk to each other about those things that interest us most. Dues are $25 per person per year. (If you are a new member and paid after September 1st of 2016, you are paid for 2017.) Send your dues to Bellville Historical Society, PO Box 67, Bellville Texas 77418, or give them to our Treasurer Linda Muchisky at the next meeting. . . .
